Many businesses are not functioning at the moment and one of the reasons could be that they are using the old paradigm. Although I don’t think it can be put down to the way one does things, as it’s much more complex but I would say that there is some truth to the fact that the world is taking advantage of people and in order to touch the truth and the creative intelligence that is beyond that, we need to navigate in the difficult territory where people function from their ego. We can’t push that aside and say that that doesn’t exist but it’s a fine line. If we focus too much on that world then we forget the world, which goes beyond that.
What I think is important is that we realize where things are, and say that we don’t want to play that game anymore, that it’s not important to come from that space anymore. When we know what we don’t want, then we can actually be very clear about what we want; we can have a creative, real, down to earth plan on how to deal with the situation, how to deal with economics, or if you have a business, how to deal with the business world.
One has to trust that there are new ways of doing business and I see that happening in Europe and in America. I see that the old ways of doing things don’t function as well as they have been and people are looking for new ways and when we communicate to those people that have the same idea, it creates a force in itself. It’s a slow process that won’t happen overnight but I feel that if you’re very clear then you get in touch with people who have the same idea and there is a force that begins to expand that allows for business to be done in a totally different way.
Of course, one also has to remain grounded. So many people say that this or that is their dream and they jump without knowing really what they are jumping into. You see we have to let go of the past that keeps us away from our dream and that is part of the work, to let go of what is negative in our lives before we can actually create the space for what is positive. Such an attitude is also valuable in business matters because, strangely enough, even if we don’t like to come from our ego or do business in a competitive way sometimes that is part of our structure because we’ve grown up in that environment and that is the only environment that we understand so we actually react to it in a way that is like everyone else, even if our mind says we want to do something else.
That is where it is very important for business people to let go of the old paradigms in a very clear and grounded way to allow for the new paradigms to emerge.
